Travelin' Soldier Lyrics - Dixie Chicks

Review The Song (55)



Two days past eighteen
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth a café there
Gave his order to the girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I've got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
sponsored links
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When the letter says a soldier's comin' home

So the letters came
From an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's gettin kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When the letter says a soldier's comin' home

(Martie's fiddle break - Emily's dobro break)

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead

Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When the letter says a soldier's comin'

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When the letter says a soldier's comin' home

I love it | Reviewer: Tylia Kirk | 10/31/13

I loved this song ever seen I heard my older sister playing it on youtube. After that I have fell in love with this song. I play I all the time. I can also sing the song pretty good I have been told.

Waitin' for him to come home... | Reviewer: Jacalyn | 5/30/13

I'm 17 and my boy friend is currently enlisted in the army. This song is everything that we will ever be... Waiting for him to come home feels like waiting for the cure to cancer... It's feels so long and sometimes you get so scared that it may never happen... But this song makes you want to hold on... It kind of reassures you that he is and will be coming home... It reassures you to never lose hope... I will love him no matter what way shape or form that he comes home to me in...

So sad | Reviewer: Silvia | 4/20/13

This song is so sad. I don't know anyone in the military, but I play piccolo in the marching band, and I would definitely write letters/fall in love with a soldier, and this might sound stupid, but this song makes me cry for things that might happen. Yeah, that does sound stupid... Anyways, I'm sorry for all of you that this song really hits home for you because you have a loved one dead or fighting. God will protect them. If they do pass away, know that they are watching down on you and you will see them soon. God bless the soldiers.

All you good men and women | Reviewer: Monica | 4/30/12

My dad is in the united states military and has been deployed several times. Every time he leaves all I can do is thank my lucky stars he is as strong as he is. All you good men and women out there, I hope you realize how much you mean to me for restoring the peace and keeping our homes safe! This song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it and I can't help but think about all of the people who haven't been as lucky as me and have lost a love one to a war. It may feel like you are the only one who feels pain over this, you aren't I will share in that burden with you regardless of who you are! Know that their sacraficre does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Stay strong.

My traveling soldier | Reviewer: Courtney Michelle | 11/7/11

My traveling soldier went of to war, wrote me letters and told me his heart was sore, I cried and cried until I couldn't cry no more. This song says one night at a football game well the band played but no one sang when they heard those names. I cried when I heard thhihs song...at first I was so mad at god for taking him away, but now i can say I orgive him. But love will never be forgotten.

Soon a year ago :'( | Reviewer: Corinna | 3/14/11

On May 6th 2010 there was a guy who I had known since I was 4 years old who died in a car crash... He was the coolest guy I had ever known, he was the reason his family had a great time... Now one of his younger sisters tryed to strangle the person who drowe too fast then crashed into her brother's car with accident wich killed her brother just half an hour later, the last time she saw the person who did it... :'( His youngest sister is doing worse in school and making up excuses of why hasn't done her homework... They writing shit about the person who drowe into their brother on facebook and are mean to him all the time... They won't accept that he didn't drive into/killed him Intentionally, and the guy who did it wanted it to be him! But every night I dream about the guy I knew telling them to stop hating on the guy who did it, 'cause it could have happened to anyone who drives like total IDIOT!!
I think of the guy who died as a travelin' soldier because he was fighting against the people around him who were lieing and for the ones who wanted people to tell the trouth... Now almost all the people I know that he knows lieing others right up in the face about what really happened in the car crash! :'(

First Time | Reviewer: Stef(: | 9/30/09

The first time i heard this song, my friend told me to listen to it on her ipod. she knew that i was in love with a marine, and she knew it would touch me. Well yeah, i listened to it and just busted into tears, because it reminded me a lot of him. (:

my lost love | Reviewer: Amanda | 8/5/09

I was waiting on an Army soldier and he went over to Iraq. I wrote him every single day and he wrote me as much as he could. One day is dad called me to let me know that he had passed away, two weeks later I got his last letter. I love this song because it reminds me of him so much. <3
